Joe Arpaio Says The President Should Thank Him Personally After Every Illegal Immigrant Roundup

Joe Arpaio would like some recognition.
Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio took the stage today in an event hosted by the county's Republican Party, saying -- among other things -- that President Obama should thank him every time the sheriff's office goes on an illegal-immigrant roundup "employer sanctions operation."

Arpaio didn't exactly stick with a topic during his 13 minutes on stage, covering everything from the investigation into the president's birth certificate, when he'll resign (never), the Republican primary, and of course, why he should be thanked for nabbing illegal immigrants.

"The president should be thanking me every time we raid a place," Arpaio said. "We remove illegal aliens; that makes another opening for U.S. citizens.

"How come the president doesn't thank me for doing what I can for the economy?" Arpaio continued. "I never get any thanks from the White House -- that's okay, it doesn't bother me."

Of course, that's the same president who's under "investigation" by Arpaio and the "birther" gang.

Arpaio said he took on the "investigation" into Obama's eligibility to be president because he was "doing him a favor" by intending to clear his name.

He didn't say which way the conclusion to that "investigation" is going to go, as we'll all have to wait for the results show on March 1.

Arpaio reiterated that he takes his job as sheriff "very seriously," and said he's not headlining the birth-certificate results show just for some media attention.

"I don't have press conferences just to get my name on television," Arpaio said, as we chuckled. "When i have a press conference, I talk about something."

Arpaio also briefly touched on the Justice Department report calling out the MCSO for racial profiling, saying they're only interested in him "because I'm enforcing the laws."

"[It's] okay," he said. "You don't see me losing any hair."

As for Arpaio's resignation -- he says it won't be coming until he's at least 1,000,079 years old.

"I have a lot of, uh, organizations that, uh, want me to resign," Arpaio said. "Uh, that's not gonna happen in a million years."

Luckily, C-SPAN got Arpaio's speech on tape, which you can watch by clicking here.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio could be Obama's worstnightmare, or he could be just another wind bag who is full of hotair llike Donald Trump.

On March 1st. we will find out one way or another.

Outside of Maricopa County, this senile, corpulent asshole is nothing but a joke.  Outside of Maricopa County, Maricopa County itself is a joke.

 What fascist cons like yourself fail to realize is that *everyone* has constitutional rights in the US, including undocumented migrants.  You can try to dehumanize them with racism all you want, but they are still protected.  Deal with it.

my goodness....such inane vitriol from soooo many momma's basement children. Thank you Sheriff Joe for taking seriously the job you do and for upholding the rights and privileges of being an American citizen, which are being chipped away by so many others who want to devalue American citizenry. I believe that if your enemies could have removed you from office and thrown you in jail you would already be there..... Lord knows they have tried and FAILED enough times :)>

A true American patriot, walking in the steps of the forefathers with great respect for the Constitution -- a document which grants us freedom and rights and declares them unalienable!

A true representative of the people, who puts the people first, we need more such public servants, such as him ...

It's 'Inalienable' not unalienable, and it's contained in the Declaration of Independence not the Constitution.

The only thing I thank Arpaio for is being the stereotypical version of the overly strict conservative tyrant that makes ordinary people realize how insane their underlying philosophy is.

Stupid Much??

 Agreed, conservative philosophy is stupid.  It's actually been proven psychologically (and you can look that up).  There's a reason why the vast majority of scientists and educators are liberal and the majority of bankers and used car salesman are conservative.

Why isn't this scumbag in prison ?

I think that is what sheriff Joe would like to know, "Why isn't obummer in prison after fraudulently presenting false birth certificates?"

"How come the president doesn't thank me for doing what I can for the economy?" Arpaio continued. "I never get any thanks from the White House -- that's okay, it doesn't bother me."

Yeah, it doesn't seem like it bothers you at all...

Unless someone reads the fucking line RIGHT BEFORE IT WHERE YOU WHINE ABOUT THE PRESIDENT NEVER CONTACTING YOU.

Seriously, don't you people who keep voting for him feel like he's insulting your intelligence at this point? He can say absolutely any stupid, nonsensical thing he wants, and you guys lap it up with a spoon, lick his balls clean, and ask for more.

Jesus, have some respect for yourselves, any media whore who makes THIS statement:
"I don't have press conferences just to get my name on television, when i have a press conference, I talk about something."
Doesn't deserve to be a crossing guard, let alone Sheriff. Go ahead, elect another conservative, people don't really care, but quit using him as your main weapon in the war to out-stupid states like Utah, Kansas and Texas.

Why would Arpaio think the President is going to thank him for something the President doesn't want? Maybe he is getting senile.

Winston Court

Exactly.  Since obummer is NOT an valid American born president, why wouldn't he also support the sea of illegal immigrants here?  Don't birds of a feather flock together?

Unfortunately he is not and whatever this poster has it must be contagious since so many have exhibited similar symptoms... Hopefully one day we will discover a cure for this disease....

...of stupidity... The amazing thing is the cure has been around forever and it is called knowledge and critical thinking.... Unfortunately the cure is even more frightening to the patient than the disease.

Why, of COURSE, Coz!  I know that all American Citizens will PRAISE da shurf for opening up those jobs that pay less than minimum wage for all of those darned baby daddies to earn $5 an hour to pay for their 7 kids.  Yeah, that will help the economy and welafre rolls.  Obama should be giving Joe a standing ovation for his "contribution".  

What a joke he is.

So now he is trying to clear Obama's name? Isn't a different story than the one he told us as to why he was looking into his birth certificate?

Tommy Collins

 He started the spin "tongue in cheek" a couple weeks after the 'investigation' was started and he was being hounded as to why it was taking so long. He is trying to make it seem like he's doing this for the Prez, as if anyone on the face of this rotating earth would actually believe his sorry wrinkled ass through which he speaks.

Arpaio is the classic case of:

"Alzheimer's disease" causes brain changes that gradually get worse. It's the most common cause of dementia — a group of brain disorders that cause progressive loss of intellectual and social skills, severe enough to interfere with day-to-day life. In Alzheimer's disease, brain cells degenerate and die, causing a steady decline in memory and mental function.

A loser in denial and needs to resign,retire and just go away!

Embarrassment to AZ.

Actually, this is kind of a let down, to me.

I figured that Joe would be furious over all the attention given to Babeu over the weekend and that he'd come out with guns blazing today.

Guess there's still enough time for a sweep this week.

You have to be sure that he is planning some"thing" ...

Either a Mexican round up, a CIA plot to kill the shurf before March 1, or maybe Joe will start chomping sausage since that got Babeu lots if publicity.
